Solve the Privacy Puzzle
Principles and Requirements
When deciding what to call the statement you make about privacy on your Web site, or in company literature such as mailings to customers, one noticeable trend, pardon the pun, is to use the term “Privacy Notice.” This is in line with Fair Information Practice Principles, a list of privacy protection best practices for businesses compiled by American, Canadian and European government agencies over the last 25 years, the first, and arguably most important, of which is notice. But you already knew that, right? The Fair Information Practice Principles are the ground rules of privacy as it were, so they should be familiar territory to you and anyone else at your company who works on privacy.
Notice: You must tell people how you will use their data before you collect it, including both primary and secondary uses.
